Open Enrollment Programmes for Your Professional Development

Advanced Business Writing - Antigua and Barbuda

Communicating effectively, with clarity and precision is an art. It separates you from the pack and enables you to achieve your goals. The confidence you gain through consistent practice far outweighs the fear of doing the activity. Your status among colleagues, other managers, and the community grows allowing opportunities to come to you. 

Organisations are seeking to ensure that their business professionals are conversant with the many facets of communication and document preparation, which will ensure that their products and services reach the target markets. Therefore, being able to write effectively allows you to properly convey ideas and concepts. 

This programme outlines a comprehensive initiative that will allow participants to build capacity in the area of business communication in written (reports, letters, email, memos, etc.) and verbal (presentations to management and clients) forms.
